|Remembering Kerry Schooley Art Waves #96|
When writer and arts organizer, Kerry Schooley, died this past September it shocked and saddened the Hamilton writing community, for whom he had done so much. To help us remember Kerry, we invited Jeff Seffinga, Jean Rae Baxter and Chris Pannell to tell stories about him, read from his work and play some of his favourite music. It was, to nobody's surprise, a very moving conversation.
